If you are passionate about photography, here are a few things that could help you out along the way. Remember to always take your camera with you as you never know when a great opportunity to take a shot will arrive.
Take as many shots as possible and what you have time for. When it comes to digital cameras there’s no reason to take just one shot of something when you can take several. This is especially true for places and people you may never see again.
Trusting your own instincts and your eye is usually the best thing to do. When you’re framing the shot, just move the camera around a little bit to see if there’s a better option. Always settle on the one that feels right to you.
Don’t be afraid to be critical of your own photos. Look at them and be honest when you ask yourself if they could be better. Check the composition in your photos and see if you’re happy with it. If not, don’t be afraid to try something different until you’re happy.
Make sure you know how your camera operates. You’re not going to be able to memorize everything right off the bat, but over time you should know which functions do what. Sooner or later things will come to you automatically.
When working in editing software, remember there’s only one copy of your original. Make sure you save another copy of the photos when working on them so you always have a backup in case something goes wrong.
